Bikini Drive-In (1995)

A girl becomes the owner of a dilapidated old drive-in which is thousands in debt.  Will she be able to find a way to save it, or will it fall into the hands of the greedy tycoon who wants to turn the land into a "super mall"?  Let's find out...

The Unholy Rollers (1972)

A roller derby movie starring Claudia Jennings, produced by Roger Corman.  Tagline: "On the boards she's a skull cracker at 40 m.p.h. On a date she really plays rough!"

Confessions of a Window Cleaner (1974)

Any conversation about the Confessions series inevitably leads to a comparison to the Carry On films.  Both franchises share a particularly bawdy brand of humor; however, Confessions is almost universally regarded as inferior.

The caliber of acting in Confessions is certainly worse (often dire) and the level of humor is consistently idiotic. However, the Confessions films have one edge over Carry On - and that is a happy willingness to get sleazy.  While Benny Hill, Are You Being Served? and Carry On could certainly get risque with their humor - Confessions could get downright graphic, with copious full frontal nudity.

The Confessions movies are based on the novels of Christopher Wood and feature Robin Askwith as the cluelessly promiscuous Timothy Lea and Anthony Booth as Sydney his brother-in-law. The films greatly benefitted from the relaxation of censorship laws in Britain, and a more sexually permissive culture (as evidenced by the tidal wave of sex-coms coming out of England and Australia at the time). What better time to translate a series of sex paperbacks to film?

A Guide for the Married Man (1967)

I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that this is, from to start to finish, one long, uninterrupted argument for adultery and how-to handbook for getting away with it.  No movie title has ever been so perfect, as this is nothing more than an illustrated guide.

Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers (1988)

When you rent a flick with a title like this, you sort of know what you're in for - a campy good time with a heaping helping of blood and boobs. Too many movies with promising titles under-deliver, but not this one.  This one lives up to its name.

In a way, it's like Airplane!  A silly send-up of the genre, full of ridiculous lines delivered with total seriousness.

Lady Godiva Rides (1969)

Lady Godiva Rides (1969) is a "nudie cutie" taking place in 19th century England then the American Old West. Sure, it's a silly, mindless sex romp, but if that's what you're in the mood for - it delivers on all counts.  Let's have a look...

The Body Beautiful (1997)

The Body Beautiful (AKA The Ultimate Attaction) is one of those late night Cinemax flicks - always forgettable, but never disappointing in the skin department.  However, the "click" series actually brought a degree of originality and oddball creativity to the "Skinamax" genre.  The Click series featured a mysterious device (that looked like a lame 1980s GI Joe walkie-talkie) which can incite sexual arousal.  Naughty shenanigans ensue.  This particular click episode took place at a gym...

Sweet Kill (1972)

Curtis Hansen would go on to direct The Hand That Rocks the Cradle (1992), L.A. Confidential (1997), Wonder Boys (2000), and 8 Mile (2002).  But we've all got to start somewhere.  For Hansen it would be this disturbing grindhouse tale of a guy who can't get it up, so goes after dead girls - a film he not only directed, but also wrote and produced.

Under the Doctor (1976)

In this British sex comedy, a psychiatrist hears racy tales from three different patients played by Penny Spencer, Hilary Pritchard and Liz Fraser.

Case of the Full Moon Murders (1973)

Directed by Sean S. Cunningham, the man behind Friday the 13th.   Wes Craven (uncredited) also had a hand in the filmmaking as did Steve Miner.  Interesting in that it's a camply low-budget soft-core film, starring a couple well-known male porn stars - Harry Reems and Fred Lincoln, who appeared in Craven's Last House on the Left.

What Do You Say to a Naked Lady? (1970)

I remember seeing the racy Allen Funt films in the video store and being shocked that the Candid Camera guy ever went this direction.  His TV show was wholesome, and my family watched it together.  The fact that there were these R-rated spin-offs blew my mind.

Beyond the obvious reason to watch this film (the nudity), the film also serves as a fascinating documentary.  An eye opening look at how far our sexual attitudes have changed in the past few decades.

Chained Heat (1983)

A Women In Prison film starring Linda Blair, Stella Stevens, John Vernon, Edy Williams, Sybil Danning, Monique Gabrielle, and a host of other recognizable names.  It's like The Love Boat, but in prison.

Blind Date (1984)

A guy loses his vision, and is given a high tech device enabling him to see.  But when he plugs it into his Atari 2600, it enables him to see a serial killer on the prowl.  Yep - you read that right.  He plugs into an Atari.  Also featuring Kirstie Alley as his girlfriend and Marina Sirtis as a cheap hooker....

The Reincarnation of Sex (1982)

A Reencarnação do Sexo (1982) AKA Posesión Mortal  - the ghosts of an old farm house make the inhabitants homicidal nymphomaniacs. Bloody, sexy, sweaty chaos ensues.

Secret Fantasy (1971)

Secret Fantasy (1971); AKA "Il merlo maschio" - A cellist just can't get it up for his wife.  In a day before Viagra, what's a guy to do?  Well, he may have just found the solution... but it's a bit outside the normal playbook...

Satanik (1968)

The Satanik comic/fumetti is brought to life in this groovy '60s anti-superhero movie from Italy.
